[movies]Domestic Family Violence and Battering: Up or Down? - Sam Vaknin
According to the Washington State Domestic Violence Fatality Review Project, and Neil Websdale, Understanding Domestic Homicide, Northeastern University Press, 1999 â women in the process of separation or divorce were the targets of half of all intimate partner violent crimes. In Florida the figure is even higher (60%). Hospital staff are ill-equipped and ill-trained to deal with this pandemic. Only 4% of hospital emergency room admissions of women in the United States were put down to domestic...

[movies]The Abuser's Mind - Sam Vaknin
Abusers appear to be suffering from dissociation (multiple personality). At home, they are intimidating and suffocating monsters â outdoors, they are wonderful, caring, giving, and much-admired pillars of the community. Why this duplicity? It is only partly premeditated and intended to disguise the abuser's acts. More importantly, it reflects his inner world, where the victims are nothing but two-dimensional representations, objects, devoid of emotions and needs, or mere extensions of his self...

[movies]Abuse: Inevitable and Normal? - Sam Vaknin
Is abuse anomalous â or an inevitable part of human nature? If the former â is it the outcome of flawed genetics, nurture (environment and upbringing) â or both? Can it be "cured" â or merely modified, regulated, and accommodated? There are three groups of theories â three schools â regarding abusers and their conduct.

[movies]Victim of Narcissist: Move On! - Sam Vaknin
To preserve one's mental health â one must abandon the narcissist. One must move on. Moving on is a process, not a decision or an event. First, one has to acknowledge and accept painful reality. Such acceptance is a volcanic, shattering, agonising series of nibbling thoughts and strong resistances. Once the battle is won, and harsh and agonizing realities are assimilated, one can move on to the learning phase...

[movies]It's All My Fault: I Provoked Him - Sam Vaknin
The problem starts when the true victims - often the abuser's "nearest and dearest" - adopt his/her point of view and begin to feel guilty and responsible for his/her reprehensible behaviors. This folie a deux (literally, in French, "madness in twosome") or shared psychosis is very common: victims and abusers form symbiotic dyads, abrogate reality, and share the same delusions. They allocate roles: the victim triggers the abuse and deserves it, the abuser is merely a hapless tool, devoid of voli...

[movies]Intimacy and Abuse - Sam Vaknin
Many abusers believe that their abusive conduct fosters, enhances, and cements their intimate relationships. To them, pathological jealousy is proof of love, possessiveness replaces mature bonding, and battering is a form of paying attention to the partner and communicating with her. Such habitual offenders do not know any better. They were often raised in families, societies, and cultures where abuse is condoned outright â or, at least, not frowned upon...

[movies]Abusive Ex: Tell Your Children the Truth! - Sam Vaknin
Children have a right to know the overall state of affairs between their parents. They have a right not to be cheated and deluded into thinking that "everything is basically OK" -- or that the separation is reversible. Both parents are under a moral obligation to tell their offspring the truth: the relationship is over for good. A responsible parent should teach the child how to resist inappropriate and hurtful actions...

Forgiving is an important capability. It does more for the forgiver than for the forgiven. But it should not be a universal, indiscriminate behaviour. It is legitimate not to forgive sometimes.

The most dangerous class of abusers is the paranoid-delusional. If your ex is one of these, he is likely to: Believe that you still love him (erotomania).

[movies]Narcissist and Psychopath Coping Techniques - Sam Vaknin
There are a few techniques which work wonders with abusers. Some psychologists recommend to treat repeat offenders as one would toddlers. The abuser is, indeed, an immature brat -- though a dangerous one, endowed as he is with the privileges and capabilities of an adult. Sometimes ignoring his temper tantrums until it is over is a wise policy. But not very often -- and, definitely not as a rule.

The abuser often recruits his children to do his bidding. He uses them to tempt, convince, communicate, threaten, and otherwise manipulate his target, the children's other parent or a devoted relative (e.g., grandparents). He controls his - often gullible and unsuspecting - offspring exactly as he plans to control his ultimate prey. He employs the same mechanisms and devices. And he dumps his props unceremoniously when the job is done - which causes tremendous (and, typically, irreversible) emot...

Some people adopt the role of a professional victim. In doing so, they become self-centred, devoid of empathy, abusive, and exploitative. In other words, they become narcissists. The role of "professional victims" - people whose existence and very identity rests solely and entirely on their victimhood - is well researched in victimology. It doesn't make for a nice reading. These victim "pros" are often more cruel, vengeful, vitriolic, lacking in compassion and violent than their abusers...
